MSc Intercultural Communication for Business and the Professions


Course Description

Are you ready for the global workplace?

Our MSc in Intercultural Communication for Business and the Professions (ICBP) is for anyone who wants to develop their intercultural skills, and apply those skills to the world of business or beyond. With research increasingly showing a need for employees who can work across cultures, the intercultural skills you’ll learn on the course will prepare you for wherever you want your career to take you.

A programme tailored to your needs

With a wide variety of modules to choose from, our MSc ICBP lets you tailor your studies to your own career aspirations. Want to apply your intercultural knowledge in a role within marketing? Or perhaps you’re interested in issues in intercultural politics?

Our core modules focus on culture and communication, developing your ability to analyse, explain and research intercultural communication, as well as strengthening your practical cultural skills. You can also choose from optional modules that enable you to specialise in various communication and/or professionally oriented areas, including marketing, international business and even learning and working in a new language.

What’s more, you can choose the pace of your studies, with full-time and tailored part-time study options available.

Apply your intercultural skills in the real world

On our MSc ICBP, our programme is rooted in the understanding that teaching needs to be informed by research and practice alike. Our research with organisations across a wide range of industries is reflected in both our course content and our approach to teaching. That’s why each module on our programme gives you the chance to apply your intercultural skills and knowledge in a practical way – from in-class discussions and group projects, to case studies or an experiential placement.

As an MSc student you’ll also have many opportunities to gain first-hand insights into challenges that organisations face, thanks to our guest speaker series that runs through all terms. In previous years, we’ve hosted speakers from businesses and organisations from around the world, on a wide range of intercultural, international issues.

Experiential placements: go beyond the classroom

In today’s competitive workplace, opportunities to put theory into practice when studying are invaluable. As a student on our MSc ICBP, you’ll have the opportunity to undertake an experiential placement as part of your degree programme – giving you hands-on experience of applying the skills you’ve learned in the real world.

Our students have undertaken placements ranging from visiting our partner universities around the world, to organising their own work placement. Whether you want to study in China, or work with an international business in South Africa, you’ll have the chance to gain a real edge in taking the next step in your global career.
